Call for nominations for the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award

February 1, 2018

In 1984, Robert F. Kennedy’s eldest child, Kathleen Kennedy Townsend, saw a need to celebrate and support activists whose work reflected his conviction that one person can make a difference and that each of us should try. That year, Kathleen founded the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Award to honor courageous human rights defenders who spoke truth to power. In the years since, RFK Human Rights has forged strategic partnerships with its laureates, whose work advances human rights causes all over the world. In combining resources and collaborating on ideas and strategies with RFK Human Rights, the laureates have been able to amplify their transformative work and broaden awareness of their causes to a worldwide audience. The deadline for nominations is 31 March, 2018.
